If you’re looking to upgrade or improve your home,...
You need to be 100% sure that you are going to be happy with the extension you are investing in before getting it fitted, and there are many options for orangery and conservatory designs out there which may cause confusion and uncertainty.
If you are unsure as to your options when it comes to the style of your conservatory or orangery designs, this guide should give you a better idea of what you are after and what will suit your property.
Popular styles of orangery/conservatory include Edwardian, Victorian, Lean To and Gable fronted.
This style of orangery/conservatory usually has a symmetrical shape, offering a simple yet classy design. The basic shape of this extension allows for maximum use of space, meaning that furniture can be efficiently placed in the corners of the room.
If you prefer a traditional style when it comes to your home décor, Victorian style orangery/conservatory designs may be for you. The classic multi-faceted style can be a centrepiece for any home, and is commonly paired with stunning French doors.
You may think that Victorian style conservatory/ orangery designs will only compliment an already traditional style home, but you may be surprised that many people actually opt for them on their modern home. The contrast between traditional and contemporary décor can actually give your home a desirable look.
This is the simplest, and also the most popular, style of orangery/conservatory you can add to your home. The simple and sleek design makes it ideal for contemporary homes, and is great for homes with limited space.
Even within this style, there are many options you can choose from. Options for the base of the orangery/conservatory include dwarf walls, UPVC panels and full-length glass panels. There are also variations when it comes to the roof of the extension, including the angle at which the roof leans.
This Georgian inspired style is popular amongst period properties, but also makes quite the centrepiece for modern homes. Typically, Georgian conservatory/ orangery designs have a high triangle-shaped roof. The elegant structure makes this style popular amongst home owners.
